American Psycho by Mary Herron (2000)

Adaptation of a controversial novel by Bret Easton Ellis. The careful and detailed descriptions allowed for an accurate depiction of Patrick Bateman’s obsessive attention to detail. Christian Bale is perfect in the role of an insane serial killer leading an immaculate life of a 1980’s yuppie.

Although made in 2000, the film breathes and feels the 1980’s – the times of Wall Street, walkman, golden watches and first cordless phones.

It is a horror film but on the verge of comedy. Thankfully certain scenes described in detail in the book were too hard core to be shown on the screen.

It’s a good film and Christian Bale  is the embodiment of pure evil.
